So I've never really spent much time in the city streets of Charlotte, but after passing through for about the 10th time in the past year I actually stopped and took a look around. You wouldn't think so driving by on I-77, but once you make your way Uptown the almost bumper to bumper fast paced world that revolves Charlotte goes away, and you find yourself in actually quite a sleepy town; to city standards that is.
It was a bit cold for my wife to want to tag along on our first stop before Christmas, but we got to walk around just enough to give us a better feeling of Charlotte's Uptown life. On our way back to Virginia we made a strictly for photos detour back to Uptown, this time on a Sunday. You know your in the South because you could stop to tie your shoe in the middle of the street and probably not a car would pass before you were done and safely to the other side.
Aside all that, I'm still left feeling what I can only describe in the words of William Shakespeare, " O, wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?" Unfortunately yes, though visiting strange new cities is a bit luck and a bit localizing yourself to what is truly "local." I look forward to visiting Charlotte once again, I feel that it has much more to offer as far as culture, style, fashion, and people. I feel I'll have to make a trip strictly for photography on any day but Sunday, then I feel I'll find what I've been hoping for hiding in the elusive Charlotte streets.
